Like best Podcast EVER!

It’s like a business class and history lesson mixed together! I’m bias as both are two of my favorite subjects, and the host has that intelligent humor that is delightful. Look forward to more seasons. Def willing to invest.

Great!

A really well-done podcast. Well researched and delivered with the kind of flow that keeps even the most stubborn person listening. Whenever I turn this on, I end up with a group of people by the time it’s over.

We are really looking forward to season two!

Informative and Funny

Lauren does an excellent job of concisely describing the events that led to the failure and adds a great deal of humor. Highly recommend- look forward to more spectacular failures!
